We were recently interviewed by Acaville Radio (an online a cappella radio), and we were informed that our 30-minute interview which also includes us singing four songs (live!) from our current repertoire, will be streamed Tuesday, February 17 at 6 p.m. PST on their Web site: http://www.acaville.com/. We are very excited about how this turned out, and we hope you'll enjoy hearing us share our thoughts about the group, our music and the four songs we recorded as part of this interview. If you happen to miss this, you can also catch it Saturday, February 21 at 3 p.m. PST when they will rebroadcast this interview. You can also download their app on to your mobile device from the App Store (called Acaville) and stream through there too. Our heartfelt Thanks to Rachael and Aaron for this unique opportunity to share our music with the worldwide online community. Enjoy, and be sure to check out our MEDIA Page for the songs we recorded for the Interview.

We had a GREAT time sharing the stage at the National Harmony Sweepstakes - NATIONAL FINALS (representing the SF Bay Area as Regional Champions), with six other winning groups from across the country as well as last year's National Champions. What a splendid night of Harmony it was! Each group sang our best set of 12 minutes of music to entertain the 2000+ bay area a cappella enthusiasts whilst also engaging each other in a friendly competition.
Our heartiest congratulations to Women of the World, The Quintessential Five, and Sea Note for placing in that order, and the remaining groups - Catatonic, 3 AM, and #FOURTY4B (besides us of course), for giving it your all, making it one of the fiercest National Finals ever! Shout out also to Honey Whiskey Trio (last year's National Champions) for your thoughtful gifts for each of us, for being fantastic hosts, and soothing our ears with your ever so tight harmonies! Hope to share the stage with you all again some day.
A special THANK YOU to our loyal families and friends far and wide for your constant support, and best wishes. We look forward to seeing you soon at a concert around the bay area.
Do check out our Media Page for a link to our YouTube Channel containing videos of our performance at the Sweeps this year.
Prime Time is absolutely thrilled to have been declared the 2014 San Francisco Bay Area Harmony Sweepstakes Champions following a very closely contested regional competition on March 8, 2014 at the sold-out Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco! Woohoo!!
We would like to thank John Neal for the tremendous opportunity available to a cappella groups year after year, to the five judges for bestowing upon us this incredible honor, the nine other amazingly talented groups including last year's winners - Ro Sham Bo, that we had the pleasure of sharing the stage with, and to all our families, friends, fans, and supporters of a cappella and the Bay Area Arts in general for being there and cheering us ALL on.
We look forward to seeing you at the National Finals in May.
With close to a record number of group entries this year, making it obvious as to just how many talented vocal groups there are in the Bay Area, the organizers had much deliberations before selecting nine groups to this year's contest roster.

We had a blast at The Harmony Sweepstakes on Saturday. It's always a fun event, but the talent level of these groups was really impressive. We're tickled to have made the top three with Ro Sham Bo and the T Sisters, both excellent groups with lots of time under their belts. Special thanks to Caia and Wil for doing original arrangements which really pleased the audience, and to friends in the audience for cheering us on.
